Hand-Carved Pumpkin Does the Talkin’ for this Newly Engaged Couple at ‘The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze’


Each year, more than 7,000 hand-carved pumpkins illuminate the grounds of a Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y., manor as part of a spectacle called “The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze.” Attendees from hundreds of miles around gather on dark autumn nights to marvel at the elaborate displays of jack–o’–lanterns carved for the event by local artists.

Two Saturdays ago, Jonathan Ehrlich and girlfriend, Jenna Bonvino, were at the end of a one-hour loop around the impressive exhibition when Bonvino spotted a huge floral cake made entirely out of pumpkins. Prominently displayed was a single pumpkin carved with the phrase, “Jenna Will You Marry Me?”

At first, Bonvino, 28, wasn’t sure if the message was for her. But then Ehrlich, 32, dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him. “I was shaking like crazy,” she told TODAY.com. “It didn’t feel real.”
“All I heard was people saying, ‘Is that Jenna? Is that Jenna?’” Bonvino recalled. “I kept yelling, “I’m Jenna! I’m Jenna!” and “I said, ‘Yes!’”
